It's amazing what a quick garment swap can do for your fancy cred. Case in point: I've worn this exact ensemble many a times, but with old 501s instead of this schmancy skirt.
If you're running out the door and don't have much time to think about what you're going to wear, but still need to look presentable, I'd highly recommend using this trick. This way you can use your brain for something else but still look like you put a little effort into your physical display.
The cherry atop this faux fancy sundae? A pretty french braid, obvi.
